Licence and permit applications

Safety certificate for sports stands

You need a safety certificate for any covered stand that holds 500 or more spectators, even if your sports ground doesn’t need a safety certificate. A certificate can cover more than one stand.

You can apply for:

  • a general safety certificate
  • a special safety certificate for specific occasions

You must specify which activities will be viewed from the stand when applying for a safety certificate. Your certificate will only be valid for these activities.
